Solitaire OMEGA – 3 Free Range Eggs

Imagine hearing your doctor say, “Enjoy Solitaire Free Range eggs for breakfast every morning and reduce your risk of heart disease.”

Solitaire Free Range have recently undertaken a study with selected feed Nutritionists and Academics to produce a free-range egg that is RICH in Omega 3’s. With published recommended intakes (called Adequate Intakes) of essential fatty acids in the diets, and specifically the alpha-linolenic fatty acid (ALA), by the Institute of Medicine (IOM), consumers are reminded that one Solitaire Omega – 3 enriched egg provides a significant portion of the Adequate Intakes of ALA for all age groups


Solitaire Free Range have incorporated poultry research to deliver Flaxseed based eggs into the rapidly growing functional foods market (foods that promote good health) and onto the plates of today’s health-conscious consumers. By adding flaxseed to our hens diet, the omega-3 fatty acid in the flax (in the form of the alpha-linolenic fatty acid), allows the egg to be enriched with higher-than-normal omega 3 levels.

The successful results have led Solitaire to launch its new ‘Solitaire OMEGA – 3’ eggs, reinforcing Solitaire as the market leader in producing healthier eggs from free range hens that are treated humanely in a manner that is more ethically and environmentally responsible.
